The colors of the original paintings may slightly vary from what they appear on computer monitors/mobile screens due to different camera/PC monitor/mobile screen resolution and settings. The Icons look like a real medieval Russian art, written by old masters of the 16th - 17th – centuries. All my paintings are stylized as antiqued and made in the classic technique of old Masters. ▲ Note: The icons have a number of specific features: cracks (“craquelures”); imitation of loss of the “levkas” and the paint layer. A pattern of minute surface cracks (a network of fine cracks) on painted surface. I developed my own unique technique and technology imitation of craquelure, loss of the “levkas” (gesso) and the paint layer. The crack patterns are artificial (handmade). The craquelure varnish was not used for the stylization! The icons are made to appear aged through the use of artificial methods and various techniques. The majority of the Icons, I have created were painted on aged wood, however, at times I have had to resort to the use of boards created and carved with my own hands, and subsequently aged artificially. In particular, this icon board created and carved with my own hands, and subsequently aged artificially. The “kovcheg” (cut-back centre portion) is deep, with two thin connected cut in the reverse side. All Icons are executed in accordance with the canon, iconographic traditions and iconography technique. The traditional iconography basically imitate rare extant icons of the 16th - 17th – centuries. The icons look old-time (old style/16th - 17th – centuries style) and very similar to the original icons of the 16th - 17th – centuries style. The Eastern Orthodox, Byzantine Rite Lutheran and Roman Catholic churches celebrate the feast day of St. Vladimir on 15/28 July. Vladimir Sviatoslavich, called the Great, was Prince of Novgorod, Grand Prince of Kiev, and ruler of Kievan Rus' from 980 to 1015. Originally a follower of Slavic paganism, Vladimir converted to Christianity in 988 and Christianized the Kievan Rus'. He is thus also known as Saint Vladimir. St. Prince Vladimir is depicted full-length against the yellow background, wearing the princely clothes – a long dalmatic and an elegant cloak reminiscent of okhaben’ with long swing-aside sleeves, his head is crowned. Let me know if you have any questions! I will be happy to answer. Thanks for looking!

Born in 1951 Moscow, Russia. Alexey haven’t got a formal education in the fine arts but since the early 1970’s he learnt the style of old icon-painter masters.

For this moment he created more than 500 icons, inclusive of over 25 triptych-icons. His icons look old-time and very similar to the original icons of the 16th century. Most works are in private collections in Russia, USA and throughout Europe. His works are placed in Churches, Temples and Monasteries also.

Yamshikov wrote: “Dear Aleksey, I used to send introductory articles to the previous catalogues of the icons painted by you. I am not in the habit of making a formal reply just for my friends’ pleasure; still then, I could see not only broken concepts in your creative work but sincere effort and purity of spiritual thought in icon painting. I did not accept totally everything that you used to do in your early creative period, but your hankering after the work in this gracious field promised fruitful and mature results.
